5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of wisdom here, December 13, 2012
This review is from: Hungry Start-up Strategy: Creating New Ventures with Limited Resources and Unlimited Vision (BK Business) (Paperback)
I wish I had read this book before my first startup! It took me 5 years to figure out why it failed, despite plenty of money and lots of effort. Peter nailed it: Engage with customers early and often.

This book is chock-full of great examples and is a very enjoyable and easy read.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Built to Last" for Startups, January 7, 2013
By 
Ben Gordon (Cambridge, MA USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Hungry Start-up Strategy: Creating New Ventures with Limited Resources and Unlimited Vision (BK Business) (Paperback)
The genre of business books is full of strategy insight for large companies. "Built to Last," "Good to Great," "Competitive Strategy," and other books are all geared to giants. But what about startups?

Peter Cohan has written a book that seeks to be "Built to Last" for startups. He is in a good position to do so, as he has deep experience investing in and working with startups.

This book succeeds in its his objective. Hungry Start-up Strategy provides entrpreneurs with a new framework and fresh insights for how to think about the unique challenges facing the CEOs of new ventures. The practical advice he provides can make the difference between prevailing and perishing. His book is a must-read for anyone who runs a startup.

5.0 out of 5 stars A master course with dozens of experienced teachers, January 9, 2013
By 
Mr. Manuel Marin (St CUGAT DEL VALLES, 08172 SPAIN) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Hungry Start-up Strategy: Creating New Ventures with Limited Resources and Unlimited Vision (BK Business) (Paperback)
This is not only a book, but a practical masterpiece extracted and structured by Peter Cohan from the actual experiences of dozens of entrepreneurs interviewed along a handful of months. Both the books' six main part structure and the testimonials providing evidence conform a practical compact course on new venture's creation and management. A must for entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and early stage investors.
